Some key figures
- We made an average of 12,000 car seats per day, or 66.5 million seats since the company was founded. We have a production capacity of 17,000 car seats manufactured in a day.
- We are present in 56 countries around the world.
- We are the market leader in France with a 60% market share.
- As a French manufacturer, we are subject to very strict regulations from the French Ministry of Transport. It should be noted that the car seat is a special product as approval is mandatory before it can be marketed.
Every year we undergo between 800 and 1000 COP (Conformity of production imposed by the European regulation ECE R44/04) – every 5000 car seats manufactured, we are therefore obliged to carry out a CrashTest to evaluate the safety and conformity of the product.
The TeamTex Group has installed a CrashTest laboratory in its manufacturing facility for regular and rigorous testing of car seats. We are approved to carry out these tests, which allows us to react quickly to production.

Innovation and safety
Because car safety for children is our priority, we have been working for more than 20 years to offer car seats with the best quality-price ratio.
Our motto: to make accessible to all, the safety in the car of the children. No matter the budget, we have to have the car seat you need so that you can travel serenely by car with the children.
To further enhance children’s car safety, we are constantly developing and innovating.
We are not satisfied with the homologation of our car seats, we work hard to evolve our products, make them ergonomic, safe, and comfortable.
Integrated Crashtest laboratory
In order to be able to test our car seats and make corrections for the safety of our children, we have integrated our own Crash Test laboratory into our manufacturing tool.
Every day we make dozens of Crash tests on our models to check and control the quality of the car seats. This primary child safety equipment allows us to be responsive and to act directly on our production chain.
Our Crash test laboratory is, of course, subject to regular inspections by the French Ministry of Transport, which give the homologations of our car seats. All Crash tests we perform internally are filmed and recorded and reports are sent to the Ministry of Transport for verification of the procedure and results.
Nania : a brand, a man…
The Nania brand is the family name of the founder of the TEAM TEX company: Mr Yves Nania.How did Yves Nania create his brand?
Biography of Yves Nania
Yves Nania was born in 1950 in Pont de Chéruy in Isère and started his own business at a very young age. At the age of 20, he created his first business (with his wife, Eliette): a laundry in Pont de Chéruy, his home town in Isère. In addition to his laundry business, Yves Nania worked in the workshop at Tréfimetaux and played drums at weekends in a band to make ends meet.
A few years later, in 1975, Yves Nania took the crazy gamble of taking over Renolux, a Jura company in difficulty and owned by his father-in-law, which manufactured camp beds for children. This is where the adventure begins for Yves Nania, who starts manufacturing pushchairs and then car seats for children. Very quickly, Renolux becomes the French leader in car seats, with a very good referencing of products in the mass distribution. However, in 1993, for financial reasons, and despite a full order book, Renolux went bankrupt.
Creation of TEAM TEX
Ambitious and determined, Yves Nania started from scratch. With the support of his eldest son Franck, his family, friends and some former employees, he created TEAM TEX in 1994, just a few months after Renolux filed for bankruptcy. His humility and strength of character make him an accessible man, a man who is appreciated and respected and above all a man who is feared in the childcare sector. More than 10 years after the creation of TEAM TEX, the company has become the leader in France and Europe in car seats for children, it ships nearly 20,000 car seats per day throughout the world, and it develops innovative and safe products. A man of the people, Yves Nania has always wanted to offer products at prices accessible to all budgets. This is the brand’s niche: car safety accessible to all.
In 2018, Yves Nania suffered a heart attack that upset everyone around him. He was a charismatic man with leadership. His loss has totally shaken up all the employees of TEAM TEX but also the whole community around the company. Since then, the company has been run by Franck Nania, Yves Nania’s eldest son, as CEO, and Christopher Nania, his youngest son, as Managing Director. The Nania brothers have taken up the torch with great dignity and courage. They are fighting to keep this beautiful company alive. They bring a modern touch while maintaining strong family values.
